Intimate Ranch Wedding in Texas

I love seeing how couples incorporate personal details to make their day that much more special to them. A beautiful showing of sentimental value is this next cute, country wedding set at The Spur, the family ranch, and decorated by Wolfe Florist (aka the mother of the groom). The heartwarming celebration had priceless details that made the day truly unforgettable, and you can see all the treasured memories, from Jared Tseng Photography, here.

From The Bride…Since we lived far away from our family and friends, and because of Jeremy’s service in the Army, we really wanted to incorporate a lot of personal touches to our wedding weekend. We wanted it to be a relaxing time for everyone who traveled to Waco since we had guests coming from Ireland, England and all over the US. We saw this as an opportunity for our families and closest friends to meet and blend.

We decided to have our ceremony and reception at Jeremy’s parents Ranch, The Spur, because it has always been a relaxing getaway for us and a beautiful sight to see. We used antique silver and china from both sides of the family to include some of the loved ones who couldn’t be with us on our wedding day. Our theme was sort of a like a country garden party. We didn’t want to overdue the ranch theme or be too “matchy-matchy”. I used my grandmother’s rosary on my bouquet, and wore my mother’s pearls. Jeremy’s Father became an ordained minister before the wedding, so he married us under the pecan wood arch he built and surprised both sides of the family. It was really special. Jeremy’s mom was our florist with the help of family and bridesmaids the night before. We put together lavender sachets for guests to throw as we came up the aisle as Mr. and Mrs.. Jeremy’s grandfather created our new initials out of wood, which hung behind us at dinner. We did a lot of antiquing in Texas and DIY-d chalkboard signs, table numbers, hay seating and lighting décor. One of my bridesmaids painted a tree for guests to sign and stamp. For the unity part of the ceremony, we watered a potted tree to symbolize our growing love that we will continue to nurture.

We are such foodies, so we really wanted to make sure all of the food served on the wedding day and at the rehearsal dinner was local and consciously raised. I arrived to the ceremony, and we left in Jeremy’s grandfathers 1940’s Ford that he restored himself. Jeremy’s father came up with the brilliant idea to serve beer in the bucket of the tractor, which was pulled up next to the original 1900’s barn, turned bar for the reception. We built a couch lounge out of hay for guests to sit on and sip margaritas while enjoying the lawn games put out for cocktail hour. Guests enjoyed s’mores after cake and tons of dancing before the night was over. Both our mother’s were so wonderful to pick up on all the small details leading up to the big day. Our wedding couldn’t have been the most perfect day of our lives without our family and friends to be there and for all of their help. We have never felt so loved.

From Two Times PhotographyThis Spring wedding was set at a ranch in Wimberley, TX. The family of the bride and groom, the bridesmaids, and the groomsmen all stayed on site throughout the weekend. The rustic and homey feel of Red Corral Ranch made it a comfortable and inviting event! Grey, peach, and yellow were prevalent throughout the event – as was burlap! From the overcast sky to the lights hanging in the barn, Brandi and Colton’s wedding was romantic. With a photo booth, a game of “cornhole”, and lots of dancing, this wedding was fun for everyone involved! The love that Brandi, Colton, and their families share made this such a joyous weekend!

Whimsical Pink Wedding in Austin

From The Bride…Ted and I met when we were both working at a bookstore here in Austin. I had just moved back home after college in New York, and Ted had managed to work his way down here from Fargo via Minneapolis. Needless to say, we’re both total nerds and revel in finding that other person who effortlessly “gets” your weirdness.

Everyone says your wedding is your day, all about you. But we both knew that probably the biggest reason we were throwing this party was for our family and friends. So throughout the entire planning process, we tried to keep our wedding party and guests very much in mind.

The venue was perfect. I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding, which in Texas means any time except summer pretty much. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in March is as lovely as it gets. (My “something blue” was a pressed bluebonnet in my shoe.) Somehow, it had rained every weekend in March and then for our wedding it was absolutely gorgeous. We had guests from places as cold as Minneapolis, Massachusetts and even Iceland ready to move down here :)

With my bridesmaids, I wanted them to feel beautiful so I just gave them a color palette, and I was really happy with the result. Ted’s dad runs the men’s clothing store that’s been their family business for about 100 years, so he generously helped out a lot of the groomsmen with their suits.

When I started planning, I made one Pinterest board (naturally), but as I delved deep into the world of wedding blogs, I found I had to create a spinoff board just for all the florals. Flowers, flowers, flowers, all the time. My uncle, an award-winning pastry chef, made the wedding cake, and even though he’s so talented and could do anything, I made him just do white fondant so I could decorate the cake with flowers.

Luckily, I found Bird Dog Weddings. From our first meeting, I knew Emily had the same vision that I did and it was such a relief to just let her and Sarah do their thing and know it would turn out perfect. And they didn’t call me crazy when I gave them a list of flowers I didn’t want to use based on their Victorian meanings, haha (sorry anemones).

And Julie, our photographer, was such a delight. I wasn’t even going to send her a query because she was based in Florida, but I just loved her photography that I had seen online so I figured I might as well just in case. But she was happy to travel to Austin and was so sweet that she just put all of her subjects at ease and made them look wonderful.

When everything came together, it was even better than I had imagined. You can plan and plan and plan, you can attend millions of other weddings, but there’s really no way to prepare for the sheer joy of marrying the person you love.
